Wrong Choices

The first man, Adam, was given the choice to love and obey God. When Adam chose to disobey, he began the sad plight of selfishness and rebellion that’s prevalent in our world today. Read Genesis chapter 3 to find out how sin originated.

The problem is that we all have made wrong choices in life. The Bible calls these wrong choices—sin—which in the original Greek language means “missing the mark”…like an archer missing his target. Sin is the reason for wars, terrorism, social injustice, selfishness, greed, jealousy, and addictive behavior.

What does Romans 5:12 tell us about sin?


Q What does Isaiah 53:6 say we have done with our choices?


Q What do Genesis 6:5; 8:21, and Jeremiah 17:9-10 say about the human heart?


In Romans 3:23, how many have sinned?


Q Does that include you?


Separation From God

The Bible says that God is absolutely pure and holy, and cannot allow unforgiven sinners to pollute his holy Presence (Habakkuk 1:13; Isaiah 59:2). Paul told the Roman believers what God’s attitude is toward open rebellion and sin:

“For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative” (Romans 1:18).

Q In Romans 6:23, what is sin’s penalty?


If we were to stop at this point, life would be hopeless and full of despair. But, in spite of our unworthiness, our loving and merciful God found a way to give us hope and favor. And…He paid the ultimate price to do it…his only Son!

Jesus Christ – God’s Solution

Following are just a few Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah which were fulfilled by Jesus. Look them up, and write down the specific prophecies that were fulfilled.

Connecting the Pieces

The odds against one person fulfilling merely eight of these prophecies would be the same as a blindfolded person picking one special silver dollar from a two-foot high stack of silver dollars over an area the size of Texas (greater than the entire nation of France.) Yet, Jesus Christ fulfilled over two hundred of them…exactly! And his sinless life qualified Him to be God’s perfect sacrifice for all of our sins (Hebrews 9:14).

Q Who is Jesus Christ to you?




Jesus Claimed To Be God

Jesus claimed that He was the “I AM” that God had called Himself in the Old Testament (Exodus 3:14-15; John 8:57-59).

Jesus also made other “I AM” statements of Himself:

  • “I AM the bread of life” (John 6:35).
  • “I AM the light of the world” (John 8:12).
  • “I AM the light of the world” (John 8:12).
  • “I AM the good shepherd” (John 10:11).
  • “I AM the door” (John 10:9).
  • “I AM the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25),
  • “I AM the way…truth…and the life” (John 14:6).
  • “I AM the vine” (John 15:1),

Who is Jesus according to the following verses?

John 1:1-14 __________________________________

John 14:9 ____________________________________

Colossians 1:15-20 _____________________________

Hebrews 1:1-8 ________________________________

John 10:30 ___________________________________

Philippians 2:6-11______________________________

Colossians 2:9 ________________________________

Revelation 22:12-16 ____________________________

All the evidence points clearly to the fact that Jesus Christ is God!

Sometimes it’s hard for people to accept the fact that Jesus is God because they can’t see Him. ”Doubting Thomas” was like that. Read his story in John 20:24-29.
